Biodiversity of the Land Between
The Land Between is an incredibly biodiverse region because of its rare geology. This region acts as the northern or southern range border of many species and as a stronghold for numerous species whose populations are currently declining in southern Ontario.
Species at Risk
The Land Between is one of 15 Community Nominated Priority Places in Canada because of it's high biodiversity and value in supporting mitigation of climate change effects. As such, the charity has been awarded funding from Environment Canada and Climate Change to help conserve these valuable assets through research, education, and community science and applied conservation!
The Land Between is home to habitats that are both nationally and globally rare. Thus, this special region has numerous unique features that attract a diversity of organisms like no where else in Ontario. Some of the diverse habitats of the Land Between include: Atlantic coastal plains, dark night skies, alvars, lakes, wetlands, rock barrens, and plains!
Eastern (Algonquin) Wolf
Found only in small pockets throughout central Ontario and to a certain extent in western Quebec, the Eastern (Algonquin) Wolf is a Species at Risk with vulnerable populations. Although this cryptic species has been somewhat studied, we hope to refine the understanding and then the communications related to the Eastern Wolf in Ontario. With the new information we obtain, we aim to find enhanced solutions, and enlighten some public perceptions related to this icon.
